Be amongst the Truthful!

Let’s pause to remind ourselves as well as our family and friends that as Muslims we are instructed to always be TRUTHFUL because TRUTH leads to RIGHTEOUSNESS. The prophet (S. A. W. S.) said, “Truthfulness leads to Al-Birr (righteousness) and Al-Birr (righteousness) leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to Al-Fujûr (i.e. wickedness & evil-doing), and Al-Fujûr leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man keeps on telling lies until he is written as a liar before Allâh.” (Sahih Al-Bukhâri, Vol.8, Hadîth No.116).” —> Remember, we take pride in Islam because it’s the religion of truth. As Muslims we can’t be lying and claim to represent the religion of TRUTH all at the same time! In all our affairs in life, therefore, let’s do what we can to be counted as TRUTHFUL and not LIARS in front of Allah because that will be a BIG loss! An important message that we should share with others as well.

    True are these fine words of wisdom. Even so, it is easier said then done. It is known that Rasulullah pbuh only tell the truth…even when Rasulullah pbuh was making a joke. This shows how important it is to be a truthful person, living a truthful life, making an honest living & attaining Allah’s blessing.

  • Peace to all!

    Truthfulness is a way of life. Believe in Allah’s commandment when He says, be truthful all the time. I have always observed when you speak the truth no matter what, Allah closes all path for you to lie under any circumstances. I am speaking through sheer experience. If you are a person who lies at little things, try other way around. And if you are a big liar, try atleast cutting down one at a time. You’ll feel the difference. You’ll feel at peace. Subahanallah!

    Alhamdulillah!!! The magic of truthfulness is that it relieves you of any fear or unpleasant consequences. Besides, Allah will never let down any truthful slave of His. May Allah make it easy for us to stay truthful at all times and situations… Barakallahu fiikh.
